Cranbrook's Target store in the Tamarack Centre will open on Tuesday

After months of renovations at the southern end of the Tamarack Centre, Target is opening its doors this week.

At 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 7, the department store will open for business, in the first batch of 22 Target locations opening in western Canada.

“Target is thrilled to be opening stores in Western Canada, providing a one-stop shopping destination that meets the wants and needs of our guests,” said Tony Fisher, president, Target Canada.

“It was exciting to see the response to our Ontario store openings, which have produced valuable insights that along with our soft openings in Western Canada will help us to continue to deliver on Target’s Expect More. Pay Less. brand promise for guests across Canada.”

The Cranbrook store will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. On Sunday.

It will be a bright store with wide aisles offering everything from beauty, apparel and accessories to home, grocery, and personal care.

Brands offered will include C9 By Champions, Circo, Archer Farms, Market Pantry and Up & Up.

There will be limited time collaborations with Roots and Sam & Libby, as well as ongoing collaborations with Nate Berkus, Sonia Kashuk, Giada De Laurentiis and Shaun White.

Last year, Target signed a deal with the Hudson’s Bay Co. to take over up to 220 Zellers stores across Canada.

Zellers closed last fall, making way for a multimillion dollar renovation of the site.

Target has hired as many as 200 employees to staff the store.
